A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Right now, I'm reading:
Something creepy.

My favorite story of all time is:
Neverwhere and Sandman by Neil Gaiman

In bed I like to read:
Stephen King. The best dreams come after reading the master of horror.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Books are my drug.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
I get what I want because I work for it.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Your dream comes true at Target.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
All hail Prince.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Neil Gaiman
